"With terrific craftsmanship, pure storytelling gusto and that Midas-touch ability to find grounds for optimism everywhere, Steven Spielberg has dramatised a true-life cold war spy-swap drama, starring Tom Hanks and Mark Rylance. Those brought up on John Le Carré might perhaps expect from this moral equivalence, shabby compromise and...

"The tension between director Danny Boyle’s restless energy and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin’s tendency to run in place drives the movie. It also reflects their version of Jobs, who spends a lot of time trying to look beyond the immediate problems in front of him, toward his next move—a quality the movie shows as both brilliant and damaging...

"Throughout the course of this long but never dull film, Mark makes for an affable and centered lead character—a wisecracking botanist who talks constantly to himself (and by extension the audience) in video diary entries, and sees each new crisis as a problem solving exercise, provided he can get his fear and despair under control long...

"The movie feels like a culmination of everything the franchise has been building toward since Craig stepped into the part in "Casino Royale." The most recent incarnation of Bond doesn't just have stunts and quips and gadgets and curvy women with porno names. Courtesy of "Skyfall," it has a mythology that turns Bond into Batman minus the...

Coming to a new town to start high school can be intimidating, and that's especially true for Cocoa, who can't find the place she's supposed to be staying when she arrives. When she stops at a cafe to ask for directions, however, it turns out that she's already where she needs to be! You see, the Rabbit House is both a restaurant and a boarding house, and Cocoa will be working there along with the owner's granddaughter, Chino and the strangely military-obsessed Rize. It's a great...

"Director Tom Hooper dodges the biopic clichés in Lucinda Coxon's script by pushing the actors to live in the spaces between words. Alicia Vikander does wonders as a wife who stands by her woman. And Eddie Redmayne deserves every superlative, showing Lili experimenting with her new feminine wiles."
